At 95, Edna Benson is getting more exercise than most people half her age.
Many days, she walks nearly 2 miles, or 26 rotations around the courtyard at the Scandinavian Living Center, the assisted living center in West Newton where she lives.
Recently, she reached her major five-year goal -- logging 2,000 miles on her walker.
Edna's commitment to fitness has already made her a local celebrity. When she hit 1,500 miles in 2005, she was featured on Channel 5's ``Chronicle'' program.
